We worked with Year 4 and 6 across two workshop sessions for St Christopher’s “Thank Goodness It’s Science” week.
The students took part in an interactive presentation which related to last term’s syllabus of habitats, food chains and species interdependence.
They were extremely enthusiastic and aware of the issues we discussed, thinking up many ways they can help to reduce our plastic poison. We had a show and tell of the plastic models they had created, and the children described why the creatures were unhappy or suffering due to plastic pollution, including turtles that had swallowed plastic bags and a squid with missing tentacles from becoming entangled!
